What could have killed any momentum he had, Cam turned into an opportunity to connect with the fans he had gathered. The advantage of being a one-man band is that rehearsals are rather easy to set up - especially in a socially distanced world. And even the drummer shows up on time if you are the drummer yourself. And so Cam stayed in touch and visible with his "Sounds From The Van" video series, streamed directly from his van rehearsal room. He released a live album recorded on the streets of Camden before the pandemic, which reminded everyone what we were missing. And after appearing as himself in the Golden Globe-nominated Apple TV series "Ted Lasso", Cam found that during the pandemic his audience had more than doubled in size. With his second album Crooked Hill out to great reviews, he is ready to kick it up a notch. The heavier, more ferocious sound of his sophomore fits well in a time where people are looking to finally release all that pent-up energy. And Cam is just the right man for the job.

Brendan Mayer is quickly gaining attention as an artist and songwriter, with his signature voice and intelligent songs. The son of acclaimed guitarist and songwriter, Peter Mayer, Brendan has crafted his artistry from a young age. A long-time resident of Nashville, TN, Brendan was the lead singer of buzz-band, The Turf, sharing the stage with successful acts such as American Bang and Jeff the Brotherhood. He has also been featured as a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer band, including as guitarist/vocalist during a four show run at the famous La Cigale in Paris. In 2014, Brendan released his debut album, the Getaway Car EP, on Mailboat Records.
If it’s true that an artist’s job is to captivate us for however long they have asked for our attention, no one has looked away from Eric Erdman since he first took the stage to front a band. Maybe that is because there is nothing between Eric and his audience, between Eric and the world. He lets it all in and what comes back is a poet’s soul in a troubadour’s voice. Face to face with the crowds,singing of the challenges facing the youth, the country, and the heartbroken have fueled four studio albums and 7 live albums, constant international gigging that included four USO tours to support troops overseas, and only seared in Eric’s need to write about what he sees, what he feels. Actor Bruce Greenwood speaks of Eric’s inspiration that makes the musicians on his projects “as emotionally involved” as he is, his guitar work, “stunning and specific” pulling the listener “inside the song”. Eric has penned a theme song for a nationally televised show, produced every genre from big band to country, plays guitar in both the Buddy Rich Big Band and Nadirah Shakoor’s band, and is the Music Director for the Pied Valley Radio Show (feat. Radney Foster) which began filming in 2021. Eric accomplishes all these varied endeavors and he does so naturally, because a true artist can’t be pigeonholed. Eric hears what a song should sound like before it’s really a song. Then he digs as deep to both fully realize the song and then bring it to the people that need to hear it.
Together, these two make a powerful duo like no other!
